Overview
In 1988, the blockbuster film 'Akira' changed forever the way anime was presented in movie theatres. Thirteen years later, after a complete visual restoration, 'Akira' once again changes the way anime movies were meant to be heard. Experience true, superior quality theatre sound as the blockbuster film 'Akira' is remastered into 5.1 multi-dimensional sound by the original movie composer Shoji Yamashiro of Geinoh Yamashiro Gumi. Mixed with the original Japanese dialogue, this new Japanese 5.1 DTS Surround Sound delivers an even more realistic and dynamic, full immersion into the explosive music and sound of the 'Akira' world!

Childhood friends Tetsuo and Kaneda's motorcycle gang encounters a military operation to retrieve an escaped experimental subject. The military captures Tetsuo and conducts experiments on him that unleash his latent psychic ability, but when these new powers rage out of control, Tetsuo lashes out at the world that has oppressed him!
